A Big Announcement!

We’re excited to announce that Joshua and Jessica just had their first child–a daughter they named Lucia Marie Therese Hearne. Marie is a family name on Josh’s side of the family, Therese is Jessica’s mother’s name, and Lucia is the name of a particularly brave young woman who gave away most of her possessions to the poor in the early 4th century and who was martyred by Rome.

Lucy Hearne was born on September 1, 2013, at 6:19 p.m.. She weighed 6 lbs and 11 ounces and was 20 inches long. Jessica is resting comfortably and Josh is unable to stop smiling and is currently trying to teach little Lucy the words to the University of Kentucky fight song. Pangur Ban (Josh and Jessica’s cat) could not be reached for comment.
